Sky Blues looking to sign Forest striker David McGoldrick

THE SKY Blues are hoping to bolster their attacking options this season by signing Nottingham Forest striker David McGoldrick.

The Observer understands McGoldrick has been on Andy Thorn's radar for some time and a loan deal for the young striker could be imminent after talks between the two clubs this week.

McGoldrick has one year left on his contract with Forest and a club source revealed that a deal is likely to be confirmed within the next few days and the move could be made permanent in the January transfer window.

Thorn has already drafted in Republic of Ireland striker Stephen Elliott and Callum Ball on a season-long loan from Derby County, but McGoldrick would add some much needed pace to his side.

The 24-year-old striker began his career at Notts County before joining Southampton where he scored 12 in 64 appearances for the Saints.

A series of loan moves followed before he sealed a £1million move to Forest in 2009, but despite making an impressive start, he has struggled to cement himself as a regular spot and would welcome the move for the opportunity to play first team football.
